Series looks very nice, let's see what intel-gfx-ci says. You should get a
mail, but results are also here:

I found this a bit confusing, since I generally don't think of
dereferencing the pointer as "taking a copy". That's more for the entire
datastructure when you have a memcpy() call, or kmemdup() or something
like that. Also "it is recommended" is a bit weak if you get a
use-after-free if you dont :-)

So instead "When dererencing this pointer either hold ... or use
drm_file_get_master() ...."
